Singu Chuli (known as Fluted Peak) is one of the trekking peaks in the Nepali Himalayas range. The peak is located just west of Gangpurna in the Annapurna Himal. Singu Chuli is on a ridge line originating at Tarke Kang and going south. This ridge continues south of Singu Chuli to Tharpu Chuli. The peak requires ice-climbing equipment.
Singu Chuli is an attractive mountain for climbing. The mountain can be climbed from several trials however the northeast face is normally used. The trial goes through Machhapuchhre Base Camp and crosses south Annapurna glaciers all the way to the rock overhang which can be used as a base camp(4200 m). The trail goes through the glaciers towards the north & passes through a grassy shelf to reach a ridge where camp will be set up.
Singu Chuli Peak climbing is suggested to people who have previous alpine, ice climbing, and mountaineering experience. This trek is highly recommended for majestic mountain views and an experience of great cultural diversity among the local people. Climbers need to have strong physical and mental fitness for this expedition because of unpredictable weather changes, altitude sickness, and other technical difficulties.
